are expected over the next month. the epa is rejecting a request to relax rules requiring corn ethanol in gasoline. governors from north carolina, new mexico, georgia, texas, virginia, maryland, delaware, utah, and wyoming, nine states in all, asked the epa to lower standards on a law that requires refineries to use ethanol - derived from corn - to produce gasoline. however, governors say the summer drought caused lower corn production and higher prices for the commodity. the epa says it does not believe the economic harm warrants a waiver of the standard. the sudden resignation of cia director general david patreaus was due to an extra-marital affair. in some states, cases of infidelity can lead to larger divorce settlements, divorce attorney says sometimes out of guilt by the cheating party or in other instances, if it involves high-profile couples, the cheater is willing to pay more to keep the matter private.

. stuart: how do we do it, bob? how do we do it? >> well, the epa is proposed some standards to reduce carbon emissions from new plants. we need to now turn that towards existing plants so we get this carbon reduced in our air. people want that reduced. stuart: i'm not arguing with you if that is the policy, if you're going to tighter emissions on existing plants, i'm saying that is going to cost money. that will raise the cost of electricity generation. i think you would agree with that? >> it will raise the cost of pollution, stuart, i agree with that. it says if you're polluting air, going to dump tons of carbon emissions into the air that needs to stop. we have number of ways to figure out how to do that. stuart: bob, i'm listening. i'm not arguing here. >> thank you, stuart. stuart: most welcome. >> final thing of course is to invest in building clean energy economy of the future that means energy nichesy for all of is. do more with less. means renewables. finally means putting a stop to ideas that would make matters worse like keystone xl pipeline, take dirtiest oil on planet. pi
this has been so hush-hush. the head of the epa now accused of using a shadow email, a private account under a different name allegedly to keep her practices for the epa out of the public eye. we've got details of that claim and just how far this alleged practice might spread. and president obama defending u.n. ambassador susan rice by saying, quote, blame me not her nor the message confusion after the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. up next senator lindsey graham joins us live to explain how he thinks the administration allowed our consulate in benghazi to become what he calls a death trap. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them.

that the administrator of the epa, lisa jackson, has used private e-mail accounts under a fake name and in her case, a different gender, one corresponding with other government officials. the question is whether that is obfuscating or impeding the public ability to monitor her communications which we are entitled to do. congressman andy harris is the chairman of the science and environment subcommittee. thank you for being here, mr. chairman. you are among the lawmakers who are unhappy with this use of the name richard windsor. to conduct official business. epa says this is no big deal, people have been doing this since president bush was president and you're making much ado about nothing? >> is very worrisome that lisa jackson felt that she had to use a pseudonym to communicate with other people in the government, knowing full well that congress and their oversight ability would be requesting records of official e-mail. megyn: they say that the richard windsor, and why did she use that name? they claim that the name came from a family dog.

's cheer the epa -- it's clear the epa, the interior department may impose some more regulations on drilling both nationally and on federal lands and so on. but it cannot and will not stop all the momentum that's happening in the upstream oil and gas sector. it's just too big. stuart: i wasn't expecting you to say this, but you're basically saying yes, fracking is here, it stays, it expands an will be the method by which america overtakes saudi arabia in oil production in the year 2020. it's going to happen? >> there's no question, stuart. the developments in the u.s. oil and gas industry that have happened in the last four years, the development of and perfection really of extended drilling and hydraulic fracturing, the most important energy development in the u.s. and i would argue the world since the discovery of the east texas field in 1930. kudos to obama, he gets it and not trying to stop it. new york state, that's a different story. david: robert, i want to ask about the epa. talking about the interior department. one of the problems with the epa is as stuart mentioned it
concerns and support the epa rules, which are being blamed for mothballing down the road. my question, when does politics tromped job since -- trump jobs? >> i would like to thank my wife and daughter in the audience. who can better put people back to work. he has two cats and has been taking one, which is the obama pass. 90% of the time he has supported job killing policies of the obama administration. if we want people back to work we cannot have obamacare. its stifles the economy, and it does not reform health care. it is going to take $10 billion from the economy on an annual basis it does not work, so we need to talk about the past. one is more government control. >> senator, your response. >> first, i want to thank the networks and my family, my wife of 35 years, my daughter, and my other daughter, and 60% of the grand kids are here. it is good to have james here. jobs are critically important, and i think if you take a look at what is wrong with washington, d.c., there is a long list of people. the jobs bill as a prime example that you brought up. it is interesting the gentleman i am
herald." >> you supported a failed bill that would amend claim underlie some of the authority of the epa to impose water quality standards. he also cited the several communities fighting the epa over nitrogen emission levels from wastewater treatment plant. why do you believe the epa needs to have its authority than the date? 's guinta: in this case the epa needs it limited. they are overreaching into the contiguous communities of great day. they can't advance that we desperately need your help. the epa is mandating for what they claim is logical science, but what the communities have said is failed science. but the nitrogen levels that go down to three milliliters per theater. so what i did the >> connector, work with the epa, work with the communities to find a middle ground, which is i think eight milliliters per liter comeau chevron thinks it's reasonable. nobody must see great big dirty including continuous communities. in a number of rochester testified here in new hampshire that this mandate from the epa would cost the communities $250 million, which is wrong. after that on this i
. david: let me switch your hat if i can from former governor to former epa head. the epa can be a good friend of energy producers or it can be a bitter enemy of energy producers in the united states. they would suggest it is the latter for the past 3 1/2 years, that the president doesn't like fossil fuels. he has been using the epa as a tool to go after fossil fuels, whether coal plants, natural gas, fracking whatever. do you think if we have a change in administration and change obviously in the epa we could see a bow naenz is a in energy production in the u.s.? >> you will see a change. let's not walk away from all environmental regulation. they do protect us and protect our water. david: were some of those regulations during the obama administration intended not necessarily to prevent pollution but to kill off fossil fuels? >> it was definitely policy-driven bit white house. it is clear the white house is putting its focus on green energy and renewable energy. that's what they want. and so they, the bias is definitely in that direction. that bias will change clearly under a romney a

of the clean-air standards. epa has taken all the refined products from the surrounding area and have given a waiver for using fuel that can also burn as the sole. those waivers free up and make our product available so there are no restrictions on any clean air emission requirements and that will expand out. they are currently looking as far south as baltimore and other areas to free up more products to go out there. the second thing is getting more ships coming in to bring in more fuel and refined product as well as work being done to get power back to the colonial pipeline and some of the refineries to get more product flowing that way. some of this is going on now. we hope to get some additional capability there. just getting the product there does not get it to the retail side. we are also working to supply and make sure we have supply going to the retail sector. many of the gas stations do not have power. they're looking at what additional things could be done to get power rather it is privatizing getting full backup to those will be a reopening are looking at emergency power supplies
units like the navajo generating station where the coronado powerplant, it is something that the epa is trying to shut down. you want to affect local schools, allow the epa to move ahead and impose restrictions that will force those power plants to shut down. i can tell you that it is devastation in the local community. we have seen that happen. in my hometown, we have a paper mullett shut down. it would be up and running, helping us manage the forests and to help us, but can't anymore because the epa has taken us out completely. the devastate the community. we have to make sure that economic development, and there is a large impediment right now with some of the federal agencies because arizona is 85% publicly owned. so it matters what the federal government imposes in our local communities. >> moderator: doctor carmona, you have 30 seconds. carmona: we agree on some things, we do. but i do not agree that we should abolish the department of education or the epa. who doesn't want clean water and air? it is pretty straightforward. the congress regulate those agencies. the congressman
? >> absolutely. >> that's been their plan. >> then, on top of that, epa this week. >> right. >> said basically to bp, you are not going to get any more if he had cal contracts. you have proven to us you can separate safely? correct? >> that's right. bp is the large event fuel supplier for the department defense. last calendar year they had contracts worth $135,000,000,000, mainly to the air force, which uses a lot of jet fuel. >> yeah. >> and bp was far and away the largest fuel supplier to the department of defense. they also are the largest offshore -- holder of offshore leases. they have over 700 leases. they have seven active wells in the gulf of mexico so when the epa made this announcement, the department of interior, the federal agency that overseas gulf of mexico leasing echoed that access to leases would also be off limits until this matter is resolved. now, here is where -- >> bill: can they survive this as a company? >> i think it will be very difficult but the problem here is that bp immediately issued a statement after the epa made its an
plant which the epa is trying to shut down. if you want to affect local schools, and allow the epa to move ahead and impose restrictions that will force the power plants to shut down. it is devastation in a local community. we have seen that happen in my home town of snowflake. we have a paper mill that shutdown that would still be up and running and helping us manage the forest, but it cannot anymore because the epa has taken us out completely. that devastates the community. we have to make sure economic development can come. there is a large impediment right now with some of the federal agencies. arizona is 85% publicly owned. >> congressman flake and i agree on some things. i do not agree as he does that we should abolish the department of education, nor that we should abolish the epa. who does not want clean water and air? congress regulates those agencies. he has been there a in office for a dozen years. the only have the authorities bestowed on them by congress. arizona is different. we cannot regulate dust, this is arizona. it is congress that has the ability to hold them ac

5 consumerwatch reporter julie watts says the epa is about to review mileage claims. >> reporter: car commercials are boasting great gas mileage but last week, the epa discovered two korean carmakers inflated their mileage figures and it seems the agency is taking a closer look now at everyone. it was an epa audit that revealed hyundai and kia boosted their mileage by as much as 13 miles per gallon on 13 models and the agency says that aud sit part of an ongoing investigation suggesting other carmakers soon come under similar scrutiny. the epa says the guidelines for testing -- it sets those guidelines for testing, and it expects that the industry will follow them. >>> well, hurricane sandy is having a ripple effect across the country and it's threatening the holiday shopping season. with closed ports, flooded warehouses and little gas they are having trouble getting product out of northeast before the looming cutoff for seasonal orders. with the supply chain backing it up could mean less product or pricier product here this holiday season. >>> and in an effort to boost those hol
